Study: One in 30 Require Further Surgeries After TVM Procedure

The transvaginal mesh study, published in September 2015, explored the long-term risk of failure associated with these implants. According to CTV News, Canadian researchers reviewed data collected on nearly 60,000 patients who received transvaginal mesh implants between 2002 and 2012 to address stress urinary incontinence. The researchers found that, within a decade of surgery, about one in 30 of these women required removal of the mesh or other surgical intervention.

The researchers identified a few factors that predicted the likelihood of complications after transvaginal mesh placement. The risk of medical issues was 27 percent lower for women whose surgeons performed the implant procedure more frequently. Complications also were less common among women who had only received one transvaginal mesh implant. The study found that additional implant procedures were associated with an enhanced risk of adverse outcomes.

The researchers also observed that the danger of complications appeared to increase with the passage of time. The study, which only followed patients for a decade, might have indicated different health outcomes in an extended study period, the website reported.

Women who have suffered complications from a transvaginal mesh implant are encouraged to contact a transvaginal mesh lawsuit attorney to learn more about their options for filing a TVM lawsuit.
